Seminars in Pediatrics

Seminars in Pediatrics, jointly provided annually by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Pediatrics and the American Family Children's Hospital, highlights the latest trends in pediatric research and clinical practice. Each year primary care providers, including physicians, nurses, and physician assistants come together to engage in lively lectures and networking with colleagues from across Wisconsin and the Midwest.


Keynote

Hugh Sampson, MD

Hugh Sampson, MD

Dr. Sampson is the Kurt Hirschhorn, M.D./Children’s Center Foundation Professor of Pediatrics and the Dean for Translational Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is the Director of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute and the Director and PI of the NIH-sponsored CTSA program, Conduits – the Institutes for Translational Sciences at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Dr. Sampson’s research interests have focused on food allergic disorders, and now include work on the pathogenesis of food-induced anaphylaxis, characterization of allergenic food proteins and their processing by the immune system, genetics of food allergy, development of novel diagnostic tests, and mechanisms of immunotherapeutic strategies for treating food allergies including basic studies and clinical trials of oral, sublingual and epicutaneous immunotherapy and the potential use of biologics, such as anti-IgE and anti-cytokine monoclonal antibodies. His research is funded by a number of grants from the National Institutes of Health and private foundations, and he is the PI on the NIH-sponsored Consortium of Food Allergy Research. His research has been funded continuously by a number of grants from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Dr. Sampson has published over 450 articles, 80 book chapters and edited 6 books, primarily on clinical and immunopathogenic aspects of food allergic disorders. Dr. Sampson is past chair of the Section on Allergy & Immunology of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the past-president of the American Academy of Allergy, and was elected to membership in the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies in 2003 for his research accomplishments and recognized by Thompson Reuters as among the “World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds 2014”, a distinction indicating the top 1% of researchers with the most cited documents in their specific field.

Overall Conference Objective

Provide physicians and other health care providers with up-to-date information on new trends and developments in the prevention and treatment of childhood and adolescent diseases.

Educational Objectives

  • Participants will be able to independently and consistently identify state-of-the-art, evidence-based practices influencing the prevention, diagnosis and treatment in pediatric medicine.
  • Participants will be able to assess their current clinical practices and determine if the research applies to their patient population in order to evaluate the need to make changes to their standard of care.
  • Participants will identify and discuss with colleagues trends in pediatric medicine and formulate plans to incorporate them into their practice.

Elements of Competence

This CME activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge and practice-based learning and improvement.

Target Audience/Scope of Practice

This activity was designed to meet the needs of primary care providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other health care providers who participate in the care of the pediatric and adolescent patients.

Statement of Need

The field of pediatric medicine is continually changing, resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best-practice recommendations. For the general pediatrician and the family practice physician, access to updates in state-of-the-art pediatric medicine is critical to providing optimal patient care resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best practice recommendations. In addition to feedback from past conferences and grand rounds programs, results of a survey of Wisconsin-based physicians indicated great interest in these topics. Furthermore, the members of the conference planning committee, considered experts in this field, identified issues that have seen significant advances in recent years and that will be most applicable to attendees’ clinical work.
